Hello everyone.

I had a short break from the programming and I do not recall what is normalize.css for? Can anyone explain me the value of this file?

Respectfully, Mantas

Hi Mantas,

The normalize.css file is for resetting the browsers default setting. We use this to make all browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) have the same default values. It's not really necessary to include this to your project. If you want to make your own normalize file for your preferences. Hope this helps!
